6 Fall Date Ideas + Outfits, Part 1

Maybe it's the fiery hues of fall foliage that warm our hearts.  Or perhaps the chill in the air sets us looking for someone to snuggle up with.  Whatever the reason, Spring Fever has nothing on autumn's beauty and opportunity for romance.  Date-worthy activities abound during the fall... as do perfectly cute fall outfits to wear while on those dates.  I've rounded up 6 fun fall date ideas with the wardrobe to go along with them.  


Go apple picking with the apple of your eye!  And turn your day's bounty into a delicious apple pie or cobbler later that evening.  Distressed denim contrasts with a flirty feminine top.  Keep warm with a green cardigan and soft scarf.  Rugged boots, vintage jewelry, and a red-delicious bag complete this orchard ensemble.

Enjoy a view of the autumnal countryside from the back of a hay wagon.  Afterwards, warm up with your sweetie and a mug of hot cocoa.  In a pair of worn-and-weary bellbottoms, a neutral tank, and flannel shirt you'll be looking all sorts of country cute.  Accessorize with soft, suede mocs, leafy earrings, and a tote.  


You can't let fall pass by without a romp through the pumpkin patch.  After picking out your perfect pumpkins, continue the date with some good old-fashioned pumpkin carving.  (And roast the seeds for a snack!)  Dress in skinny blue jeans, a pumpkin-hued top, and biker boots.  Accessorize with gold studs, bangles in shades of autumn, and a bold splash of turquoise on your bag.  


Take in the breathtaking beauty of a vineyard in autumn while sampling wine in a romantic setting.  For this classy occasion, get dolled up in sleek, dark bellbottoms, a feminine orange top, merlot-hued heels, and a matching vintage clutch.  Maroon looks lovely with orange in the fall, so continue the theme with matching rings and earrings.  


FallDate-Bonfire by lovelyundergrad featuring skinny jeans

What better excuse to cuddle up next to your boy than outside on a crisp fall night with a glowing fire?  To be comfortable and cute, dark skinnies, a black long-sleeve tee, gold scarf, and black boots do just the trick.  Add a little sparkly fall-inspired flair with glittering leaf earrings.


For a fun, laid-back, and slightly frothy outing, schedule a tour of a nearby brewery.  You can chat with your fella while sampling the goods.  Khaki-hued skinny jeans, one of fall's popular chambray tops, and lowcut boots looks chic, pulled-together, and laid-back.  Accessorize with ampersand earrings, a big boyfriend watch, and a simple crossbody purse in vibrant red-orange.  

Stayed tuned for 6 more dates and outfits to be posted tomorrow!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
